    Surely if you want to declare you send a runner out to Hughes to say "you've got 30 mins to ton up mate".

    Aussies shouldn't place too much pressure on Compton, we could really use someone like him to hold up an innings if he stays in and therefore puts pressure on his partner to score the runs
    Absolutely worst post ever.

    62/0 off 14 now...........what say you about that muppet??

    Kent Cricket News ‏@ksncricket 1h

    KSN understands Kent captain James Tredwell has been placed on standby by England ahead of the 4 day game against Essex starting on Sunday.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    hmmm, not sure if technique is more important than amount of revs + accuracy + guile, but that's an interesting point, mind you, most offies would improve their action coming round the wicket to lefties. I have to say I hate this declaration, batsmen have to learn to be ruthless and bat on forever, and tour games are a good time to learn.

    Seems like Watson, who not only has got his opening back, but his spot at first slip back, has shelled one

    Compton is still better than your whole top order put together. Laugh all you want, a thrashing awaits you.

    He'll probably end up with a 5-fer now that I say it, but I'm still not seeing why Siddle so clearly has to be in the test side in front of Bird.

    He doesn't. If Lehmann truly wants to pick the best side, then I wanna see him putting money where his mouth is and not picking Siddle which is a 'safe' option.

    I think it's just a case of knowing what you'll get. Siddle's pretty reliable and England probably won't smash him around the park etc. I'd expect Bird will get a run in the next game though given how well Pattinson and Starc have done here and if Siddle had a bad game, there's an outside chance there. But realistically I'd say you could be 90% certain of the bowling lineup for the first test mostly because Bird is an unknown quantity.
